I don't see why everyone dismisses the Z1 out of hand because of weight, but still considers the BH-55. It weighs 225g less than the BH-55, and only 70g more than the Markins M20.
It seems that many brands which were very well regarded 10-20 years ago are largely ignored by current photographers.
Quantum Radio remotes
Minolta flash meters
Metz flash units
Quantum battery packs
On another thread someone asked about good meters, and he mentioned being on a budget. Everyone mentioned Sekonic, I mentioned Minolta and the fact that an Autometer IVf was advertised on POTN at $140...he decided to get the Sekonic! I guess the budget be damned.
